Crane Cake


Made for an employee's 20th year of service party. He works for a crane company. The client asked me to replicate a crane for her (Oh No...). It was, again, a white butter cake, filled with strawberry preserves and whipped white chocolate ganache, iced in Italian meringue buttercream, covered in fondant. Seems to be the popular flavor combo lately!! The top is made of Styrofoam. Special thanks to Joy for her faith in me!!

Flying High

Made for a surprise 40th Birthday party on Thanksgiving Day for a guy who is crazy about planes and flying. It was a white butter cake, flled with whipped white chocolate ganache, strawberry preserves, iced in Italian meringue buttercream and covered with fondant. The Globe is made from Styrofoam. Cutting out the continients was a daughting task. It was harder than I thought, especially around India... (Ha!) Happy Flying!

Cinderella's Dress

OK, this one was for my daughter's 3rd birthday. Not like I do this everyday! And it LITERALLY took days! It was a white butter cake, filled with chocolate ganache and Italian meringue buttercream. The decorations are gumpaste and fondant. This cake stepped right out of the book and movie! She LOVED it. This one was definitely hard to take apart and cut. It broke my heart! Special thanks to my girl Anne for taking the great pictures!!

Artist's Palate

This cake was not only created for a client, but a friend!! White butter cake, filled with whipped white chocolate ganache and strawberry preserves, iced in Italian meringue buttercream, covered in fondant. The paintings around the cake were all painted by my client's talented husband. She ran around her house and took pictures and I copied them on photo paper and added the frames. He had NO idea! Happy 40th to my buddy Jerry! Special thanks to one of my biggest supporters, Soni, who has stood by me since the beginning of caking!

Precious Gifts

Created for a client's daughter's baby shower, this white butter rum cake, filled with strawberry preserves and whipped white chocolate ganache, iced in italian meringue buttercream turned out great! I made the baby a week ago and she was a bit scary when laying on my counter and almost didn't make the cake! It all came together in the end! Congrats to Noemi and her little girl!!
